Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Cookies

I have been making potato chip cookies for as long as I’ve been married. My mother in law introduced me to these buttery cookies way back when! Seeing that we just celebrated our 16 yr wedding anniversary ((applause)), I thought these would be a good treat to make.

The original recipe will look like these beauties! Soft buttery cookies with a crunchy inside. Yum.

But I took it a step further. Why in 16 years it never occurred to me to dip these in chocolate, I will never know. I mean seriously, duh. Chocolate dipped potato chips are amazing. Why not do it to the cookies?
Well, I did. And guess what? They are outstanding too! Enjoy!

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Cookies


  • ½ lb butter
  • ½ lb margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3½ cup flour
  • 1 cup crushed potato chips
  • powdered sugar
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted (optional)


  1. Mix butter and sugar until well combined. Add vanilla, flour and chips. Drop by teaspoons on a cookie sheet. To make more uniform, and look smooth, roll into a ball and press top with thumb before baking. I usually do the first two batches like this, then give up cause I want to be done and turn my oven off!!
  2. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 13-15 minutes, until golden brown on bottom and white on top. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  3. If desired (which I do), dip in melted chocolate and refrigerate to set. Enjoy!

  4. If you love butter cookies (or shortbread cookies) you will devour these. Potato chips add that little bit of salty, but enhance the richness of the butter. Wow- it actually sounds like I know what I’m talking about. Just trust me, they are good!

  5. I’ve never had potato chips cookies but I love the idea plus the ingredients are so simple and always in my pantry. I’ll definitely give these a try. Would love it if you would drop by my dessert linky party and share the recipe.

  19. Yummy! I love the way you combine your sweet & salty! What type of potato chips do you like to use?

    When I was a kid, we used to travel to my grandparents summer home in Pennsylvania and would always stop at a candy store where they made unique chocolate creations. It was the first time I ever had a chocolate covered potato chip, and loved it! I have a hunch these cookies would bring back a flood of good memories from that trip!


  20. Thanks for the anniversary wishes.
    Jenn- I use the cheap thin potato chips (not ruffled) as they crush easy. I too love chocolate covered chips- but for those I use the nice thick kettle ruffled. Yum.

  21. Just yesterday I was planning on making some potato chip cookies for some friends. Great recipe.

  22. Just made these! Yum, yum! Thanks!

  23. Betsy, so glad you like them!

  24. I made these this week for our cookie of the week 🙂 I loved them!! They are so good. My husband . . .well he complained about the chips LOL He said it was salty to which I pointed out that all cookies have salt added to them; the chips just added the salt. He said “really? Cookies have salt?” I shouldn’t have told him there were chips in these 😉

  25. Oh Wow! The name of the cookies caught my attention right off the bat! I definitely want to give these a try!! So glad I saw your recipe on Cupcake Apothecary

  26. Hi Aimee, I’m thinking of making these for a cookie exchange this week and I was wondering if you could tell me which brand or style of potato chips you like to use.

    Did you use all purpose flour? And does it matter?
